Tensions in the workplace are common. For most of us it's a daily reality that the people we work with are not necessarily the same people we'd choose as friends. And Hollywood film sets are no exception. In fact, one could argue that as hotbeds of creative energy, film sets are the perfect environment for professional disagreement.

And then there's the gossip that comes with it. Such is the case with the film 'Don't Worry Darling,' which has attracted much attention due to its director Olivia Wilde's comments about replacing Shia LaBeouf with Harry Styles, the former of whom then shared a video of Wilde asking him not to quit the project and saying this "might be a bit of a wake-up call for Miss Flo," referring to his tension with co-star Florence Pugh, which was allegedly the cause of his departure. 

Well, Miss Flo appears to have not taken those words lightly. Pugh skipped out on the press conference for the film, avoided standing next to Wilde in the red carpet photos, and sat three seats away from Wilde at the film's screening. Then, during the four-minute standing ovation, Pugh reportedly avoided all eye contact with Wilde and walked out before the applause was over. Wilde, when asked by a reporter about their alleged feud, said that Pugh wasn't present at the press conference due to production of the 'Dune' sequel, and said she's "honoured" to have her as the lead. "She's amazing in the film and as for all the endless tabloid gossip and all the noise out there, I mean, the internet feeds itself. I don’t feel the need to contribute, I think it’s sufficiently well nourished,” the director said. But Pugh's stylist shared a photo of her and captioned it "Miss Flo," so fans aren't convinced.
